Thanks for helping others out !
My little nephew updated the DSi to the new version 1.4.4,but now the R4DS
card is not working, n show ERROR !
Now how do i update the R4 ??
Can you tell me what is the official site of his R4ds card, because there are so many different R4 cards in the market, and the update methods are different depends on which card you have. if your card is r4i gold 3ds from r4ids.cn, here is the video guide for you.
More videos you can find here: Video Tutorials-dsflashcart.com
If you can not find your card, please tell me which card you have.
I bought my son a DSI XL today and had already bought an R4 Gold card.. The firmware that i was told to download would not work on it. the site i have to go on to download is www.r4igold.cn. I finally found firmware on another webpage but only a few games worked..I was getting error messages.. Im not sure why as the first r4 card my son had for his dslite the games worked perfectly.. For some reason they arnt working with this card. Keeps coming up Rom loading Failed. load rom errcode=-4 please reset system.
Never had this problem on my ds lites.
Anyway i thought i would just set up his ds for him as he asked to download something from the ds shop. As i went to do this it said there was a system update that needed to be done before he could go to the shop. So unknowingly we did the update..Now when i put the card in i get an error straight away saying
An error has occurred
Press and Hold the POWER Button to turn the system off.
Please refer to the nintendo DSI Operations Manual for detail.
Is there anyway i can get my sons dsi xl firmware downgraded so the R4i card will work again??
Or is there a fix out there i dont know about yet.. My son is devastated as all he wants to do is play his games.
I have been reading up on here in regards to upgrading the flashcart onto another dsi with earlier version..How would i do that?
The card i have is a R4i 3DS Gold upgrade revolution for ds.Thats what it says on the box.
Thanks for your help in advance.
I have downloaded the software upgrade from r4igold.cn.. i have unzipped it and now have put it onto the micro sd card.. I am now doing a firmware upgrade on the card. Will let you know how i go..Fingers and toes are crossed.
thankyou for all the help.:)
Step1: Format your SD card, a clean SD card will be better, we recommend that. Remember to back up your games or other files to your PC.
Step2: Download the latest r4i gold 3ds firmware from here: ftp://r4idsdown:firstname.lastname@example.org/Wood_R4iGold_V1.48.rar Extract it, you will get one folder and other three files. Just copy the folder "__rpg" and the file "_DS_MENU.DAT" to your root of your sd card.
Step3: Download the update patch for 3DS V4.0.0-7 from here: r4i gold update patch for 3DS V4.0.0-8 Extract it,you will get two files named "R4iGold3DS_V144_Patch_NDSi.nds" and "R4iGold3DS_V144_Patch_NDSL.nds", if you use the DSL to do the update, you need to copy the first one "R4iGold3DS_V144_Patch_NDSi.nds" to your SD card, otherwise, if you use an non updated DSi to do the update, you copy the second file to the SD card. So in the end, there are only three files in your sd card. There are: "__rpg" folder, "_DS_MENU.DAT" file and update patch file named "R4iGold3DS_V144_Patch_NDSi.nds"
Step4: Put the SD card in your r4i gold 3ds and then insert it to your DSL console. Power on the DSL, click the Sponge Bob icon and access to the wood menu. Find out the update patch file and click it.
Step5: Important: Take out the r4i gold 3ds card and then reinsert it into the DSL, then press A to start the update, when the update begins, just wait until it finishes.
Notice: make sure your DSL is full charged and do not power off the DSL during the update process.

Thanks for that.. I dont have wood firmware though.
I have figured it out i think and am doing a firmware update on my dslite. Fingers and toes are crossed..
Thankyou so much for your help. Card is now working again in dsixl..
Some games that work on my other R4i 3Ds from R4i-SDHC.COM wont work on this card.. Is there a reason behind this??
Thanks again for your help
You are very welcome :D speaking of your other R4i 3ds card from r4i-sdhc.com. You mean some games can run on your 3DS and some can not ? if that, it is not the update problem, maybe it is just the game compatibility. Have you already updated the card to the latest version, and they have released another new firmware today. see post here: Dsflashcart News - R4i SDHC 3DS New firmware V1.57b released-dsflashcart.com or http://www.wiihacks.com/ds-dsl-dsi-3...me-smurfs.html and please try the new firmware!
